Kambô is derived from the secretion of the Amazonian giant waxy tree frog Phyllomedusa Bicolor.
The secretion is comprised of a unique, complex cocktail of bioactive peptides that produce amazing regenerative benefits for the body and mind.
Nobel Prize nominee, Vittorio Erspamer (Italian pharmacologist) of the University of Rome is considered to be the first scientist to analyze Kambô in the laboratory concluding that Kambô contains a "fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications unmatched by any other amphibian."
Tribes of the Amazon often refer to Kambô as "Hunting Magic" as it brings them strength, energy, and stamina to their physical bodies, as well as sharpening their minds and senses.
"We know of at least 7,000 naturally occurring peptides in the body. Peptides are molecules that are a combination of two or more amino acids contained between an amine group and an H2 group on one end, and a carboxyl group on the other....."
"...Peptides are being shown to be successful in aiding the regulation of blood and glucose, controlling insuline levels, and treating inflammatory diseases, brain diseases, cardiac disease, metabolic syndrome, weight issues, immune deficiencies, cancers, bone and joint problems, sleep disorders, anxiety, depression and fatigue."
What are the health benefits of these peptides?
Produces contraction at the smooth muscle level and increases secretions of the entire gastrointestinal tract such as the salivary glands, stomach, small and large intestine, pancreas and gallbladder. These peptides work to induce the deep purge that takes place in a Kambô session.
Both are potent vasodilators, increasing the permeability of the blood-brain barrier both for their own access as well as for that of other active peptides. Within this family are the medusins, which also have antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
These are small peptides composed of 7 amino acids. They are selective agonists o fthe opiate delta receptors, 4000 times more potent than morphine and 40 times more than the endogenous endorphins.
They are peptides with chains of 40 amino acids with myotropic properties on the smooth muscles, producing a contraction of the colon and urinary bladder. They produce a drop in blood pressure accompanied by tachycardia. They stimulate the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland, contributing to greator sensory perception and increased resistance. Both peptides possess a great analgesic power, contributing to the increase of physical strength, the capacity to confront physical pain, stress, disease and diminish the symptoms of fatigue. In the medical field this family of peptides contributes to improved digestion and has analgesic properties against pain in renal colic, pain due to peripheral vascular insufficiency and tumour pain.
These peptides are part of a broad spectrum of antimicrobial peptides involved in the defense of the frog's bare skin against microbial invasion. These are the first vertebrate peptides that show lethal effects against filamentous fungi responsible for severe opportunistic infections which accompany immunodeficiency syndrome and the use of immunosuppressive agents. They also show lethal effects against a broad spectrum of bacterial both large+ and large-, fungi, yeasts and protozoa. Several years of research carried out at the University of Paris have shown that peptides Dermaseptin B2 and B3 are effective in killing certain types of cancer cells. Research at Queens University in Belfast recently won a prestigious award for his ground-breaking work with cancer and Kambô. Its action mechanism is produced by inhibiting the angiogenesis of tumour cells, with selective cytotoxicity for these cells.
Discovered in the 90s by John Daly's team at the National Institute of Health in the United States. Adenoregulin works on the human body through the adenosine receptors, a fundamental component throughout all human cellular fuel. These receptors may offer a target for the treatment of depression, stroke and cognitive loss diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and also Parkinson's.
They are important sources of scientific study as they are hypotensive and due to producing vasodilation and contraction of the non-vascular smooth muscle, increase vascular permeability, also related to the mechanism of inflammatory pain.
These peptides stimulate the secretion of hydrochloric acid by acting on the G cells of the stomach, regardless of the pH of the medium. They also increase pancreatic secretion, intestinal myoelectric activity and smooth muscle contractility.
These peptides stimulate gastric, bile and pancreatic secretions, and certain smooth muscles. They could be used in the paralytic ileus and as a diagnostic medium in pancreatic dysfunction.
These are neuropeptides consisting of 4 to 14 amino acids, which are opening up new perspectives on how the human brain works.
The only safe application of Kambô is through small blister points made in the skin to which the secretion is applied. The burn is not deep, with only the epidermis being removed allowing an entry “gate” for the Kambô to enter into the lymphatic system.
Basic Kambô Session
Typically 3-5 “gates” are opened in the skin for a basic Kambô session. The client will be asked to drink no more than one liter of water before applying the Kambô dots to the open gates. Once the secretion is applied to the gates, the immediate effects are quick and intense but short lived, usually ending in about 20-25 minutes on average. Within 30 seconds to a minute, the client will experience a warm flushing sensation over the entire body. The heart rate will increase slightly with a light throbbing sensation in the head. The lips, ears and tongue may go numb and tingly and may also be accompanied by a feeling of dizziness or light-headedness. These sensations last approximately 5-7 minutes followed by 10-15 minutes of flu-like symptoms where the client may feel weak, achy and nauseas. During this time, it is common for a client to purge. Because of the water consumed before hand, the purge is typically smooth and without a great deal of discomfort. After the purge, the flu like symptoms dissipate rather rapidly and the client is usually left feeling very relaxed and may be washed over with a feeling of euphoria. After approximately 30-45 minutes of rest, the client will gain strength and energy back into the body and will be able to continue their day as normal. The benefits from Kambô will be experienced in the following hours, days and even sometimes weeks following the session.
Microdosing Kambô is a wonderful alternative, for those not wanting the full purge experience, and for those whose bodies are in a more tender state due to health issues. Microdosing allows the benefit of receiving the peptides into the body, without the typical discomforts associated with the Basic Kambô Session.
Dry Kambô is a great option for those who qualify for this experience. Receiving wet is a prerequisite to dry, along with other criteria that Kindi will discuss with you during a consult. Dry is typically a longer session (20-60 minutes) and is more of a gentle, softer experience. Without the attention drawn to the water in the belly and the feeling of nausea that typically comes with a wet session, the mind is given the opportunity to be fully present in the body, giving a heightened sense of awareness as to where the Kambô is working in the body, and the emotional and mental issues associated with it. A dry session can be more of a meditative, spiritual experience allowing a stronger connection with Kambô and our own body.
Note: Dry sessions are not safe for everyone, and a certified Tribal Detox Advanced (Dry) Practitioner is the safest place to receive a dry session. Currently there are four Tribal Detox Advanced (Dry) Practitioners in the US, Kindi being one of them.
Rapé (hapé) is a sacred shamanic snuff that has been used by tribes of the Amazon basin for hundreds maybe thousands of years and is an essential part of their tribal culture and history. Rapé is not sniffed, snorted or inhaled. It is blown into the nostrils with a special blowpipe called a “Kuripé” (self administration) or “Tepi” (another person administers). This blow is quite forceful and not specifically pleasant. It can feel rather shocking or slightly overwhelming the first time someone experiences rapé. There are many different types of rapé prepared by different tribes. The fine powder is generally a combination of tobacco, ash from sacred trees, and herbs. Many tribal cultures believe rapé is a tool used in releasing emotional, physical, and spiritual illnesses that eases negativity and confusion, enabling a thorough grounding of the mind. Rapé also stimulates the mind with its nicotine content that in turn releases a.o. epinephrine, acetylcholine, and dopamine, supporting an increased focus, presence, and intuition.
Sananga, also known as Becchete (a Matis and Matsés word for a medicinal plant) are very powerful eye drops extracted from the shrub Tabernaemontaña undulate. When Sananga is applied directly to the eyes, it is said by the tribes to have the effect of giving the environment greater texture and dimension, making it easier to spot animals during hunting. The effects can last up to several days and weeks. Along with enhanced vision Sananga has been known to increase energy and even provide pain relief. Sananga eye drops can be challenging from creating a powerful burning sensation in the eyes. This may be due to the fact that Sananga is extracted from Amazonian river water that is high in tannic acid, which on its own would sting and burn the eyes. Along with medicinal qualities Sananga has psychological benefits. After the first 1-2 minutes the recipient can feel a serenity, deep calm meditative state, and even fall asleep.
